Snowflake Season

Hi my friends, I've been trying to play catch up with all the Happy Mail arrivals in January starting off with the Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit - Snowflake Season and the beautiful Snowflake Frame from the Die-Cember release. The kit has sold out but some items are still available to purchase individually HERE. I've been itching to play with this kit because I love snowflakes and seeing as Winter has yet to arrive in my neck of the woods, we seem to be the only part of the UK that hasn't had significant snowfall, I may well have to content myself with snowflakes of the stamped and die-cut variety.

I created 2 cards using the Snowflake Season 6" x 8" stamp set, Whimsy Stamps Blurry Furries 6" x 6" papers, Simon Says Silver Holographic Copper Design Cardstock and the Simon Says Eliza Snowflake die, all from the kit along with the Snowflake Frame from the Die-Cember release and two old favourites, Simon Says Stitched Slopes and Village dies.
I began by die-cutting the Snowflake Frame from Simon Says #120 Ultra White Card.
I coloured the centre section with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool, spritzed with water and blotted with kitchen towel to create the water droplet look
I fixed the snowflake frame to Whimsy Stamps Blurry Flurries paper trimmed to 4.1/4" x 5.1/2" and matted on to Simon Says Soft Navy Card trimmed to 4.1/2" x 5.3/4". I stamped the sentiments from Snowflake Season, inked with Faded Jeans Distress Archival on to the snowflake frame and a scrap of Simon Says #120 Ultra White card. 
I die-cut the sentiment using a circle die and the extra snowflakes from the Snowflake Frame die from Simon Says #120 Ultra White card and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.
I added Lucy's Little Things Ice Crystal sequins and a dashed border using a Black Micro Pen.


I matted the panel on to a 4.3/4" x 6" white card blank.

I coloured the left over outer section of the snowflake frame with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool and trimmed to fit over the Whimsy Stamps Blurry Flurries paper trimmed to 4.1/4" x 5.1/2". I stamped the sentiment from Snowflake Season inked with Faded Jeans Distress Archival.
I die-cut Simon Says Stitched Slopes and the houses from Village from #120 Ultra White card and the trees from the silver holographic card. I coloured the houses using Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink.
I fixed the Stitched Slopes and Village die-cuts to the Blurry Flurries panel and fixed the snowflake frame on top. I die-cut the Simon Says Eliza snowflake included in the kit from holographic paper backed with Sizzix Adhesive Sheet, fixed at the corners and trimmed off the excess. I matted the panel on to Simon Says Soft Navy card trimmed to 4.1/2" x 5.3/4".
I added Lucy's Little Things Ice Crystal sequins and matted the panel on to a 4.3/4" x 6" white card blank.


Have a great weekend whatever you have planned and I'll be back soon to share more winter cards, using the snowflake stamps from the Snowflake Season stamp set.
